Hard to believe we survived, isn't it? Leaving the house in the morning, playing outside till noon without checking in- then heading right back out until dinner time? Amazing! And not only did we drink from garden hoses, we drank from rusted spigets at Little League fields, and bacteria filled water bubblers in school!

We rode in the back of pick up trucks. Not a seatbelt to be found.

We played games with jack knifes and bb guns.

We drank soda with real sugar, and powdered kool aid that you had to add a pound of sugar to!

We played with erector sets- and other toys with tons of sharp edges and small parts.

Amazing we all lived to tell the stories, isn't it?
